Positive COVID cases increase across Wyoming

Wyoming’s COVID-19 dashboard was updated this week to reflect an increase in positive COVID-19 cases across Wyoming, according to a September 25th update from Governor Mark Gordon.

The complete update from the Office of Governor Gordon is shared below.


Wyoming has seen a significant rise in the number of lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 over the past week, as well as the number of active cases (891 as of Sept. 24). Daily new cases have increased from an average of 30 to 64 per day over the past 14 days. The state has also seen an increase in the percent of COVID-19 tests with a positive result, which currently sits at 4.2%. This increase has led to an update to Wyoming’s COVID-19 Dashboard, where that metric has moved to ‘Stable’ from ‘Improved”.

The new cases are occurring in a variety of settings, however social distancing measures and the use of face coverings in K-12 schools have been effective in limiting classroom transmission to date. Albany County continues to have the most active COVID-19 cases in the state, with a large number of those cases connected to the University of Wyoming. Natrona and Fremont Counties have the second- and third-most active cases.


Below is the latest breakdown for Fremont County that was updated by the Wyoming Department of Health on September 24th at 3:07 pm.
